Fact sheet

Why Waste Time Manually Processing R?um??

On Monday you advertised for a new position. It's now Wednesday, and you have 50,000 e-mails sitting in your Inbox! With ResumePipe you can eliminate this nightmare in minutes!

Give your Human Resources professionals 3-7 hours back PER DAY by automatically extracting e-mails and attachments ready for import into your Applicant Tracking System (ATS). Increase efficiency, lower your costs while keeping accuracy at 100%. ResumePipe does not need OCR technology (scanning) to interpret the text. ResumePipe's text manipulation and cleansing functions are easily the most sophisticated of any product in the market.

ResumePipe can be used in a number of ways

  1. Processing incoming resumes and attachments
  2. Integrate your resume tracking system with job boards such as

    (There is an add-on cost for these filters)
  3. Archiving incoming emails and attachments for historical or archive record keeping purposes, or to meet e-mail retention rules without having your emails stuck in a proprietary database format
  4. Easily audit emails sent and received.
  5. Investigate criminal activity on seized equipment - as used by National Drug Intelligence Centre
  6. Processing incoming data files e.g. Excel spreadsheets, CSV or tab-delimited files for automatic processing. These emails might be sent to you on a regular basis from an external source e.g. product catalogue data, price lists etc.
ResumePipe comes with TextPipe Pro, a sophisticated text processing application that reformats each e-mail and attached resume to your standard format and cleans up any special characters and white space that appears as junk characters or misaligned text.

Intelligent Processing

ResumePipe connects to your e-mail client program, grabs each e-mail and its attachments and combines and saves them to a single file. These files can be easily imported into resume packages such as ResTrac or imported into a database.

So after several tests I became a believer. This wonderfully simple application not only processes every attachment and message, but can also recognize those files that are resumes and process them in any set of predefined formats. It can also filter and automatically strip out any extraneous header or footer data and give you that perfect scannable resume.

The ResumePipe Difference
    right_arrow ResumePipe allows your HR staff to spend their time finding the best candidates for you rather than spending hours on wasteful and unnecessary manual processing.

    right_arrow Unlike other systems, ResumePipe does not use scanning technology (OCR) to interpret each resume. Instead it electronically extracts the content from each attachment, keeping accuracy at 100% (where it should be).

    right_arrow TextPipe Pro (included with ResumePipe) reformats the e-mailed resumes to give a consistent and professional look to resumes.

If you have trouble setting up extraction yourself, why not pay one of our resume parsing experts to do it for you?
